I have met very few celebrities. I did however spend a fantastic evening in the company of Linda Smith. Subsequent to a benefit performance for the voluntary sector in Stockton-on-Tees she identified our table as the one most likely to be going elsewhere, drinking, and tagged along. She was genuinely interested in our work and had none of the edge or conversation dominating self-importance one might have expected. She was fantastic company and very, very funny. Saw her live a couple of times after that and was sad to here of her death yesterday.
